Soul - LTXTS & TSTC42

Bread feeds the body, indeed, but flowers feed the soul. - Libby's Texas Tues - Step & Twisted Sketches Twisted Cards #42. Long about spring time in Texas these red poppies just "pop" up everywhere! I love all the wildflowers that we have in Texas. The poppies just seem to reach out at me this week. Please visit the rest of the POSSE's blogs and leave some love. You can find their links below and in the side bar.

My poppies are were stamped in Basic Black and colored with my blender pen using Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, and Pumpkin Pie. I started with the lightest color first working my way in towards the flowers' centers. Then on the stems and leaves I colored with Pear Pizzazz first and then I used Old Olive in the creases of the leaves and around the edges. Once my coloring was complete, added Glossy Accents to all of the flowers.
The "TWIST" in the Twisted Sketches Challenge this week was to use die cuts. Well, it may be hard to tell but the small scalled green border and the yellow pinked border are both die cut stickers. The lacey scalloped is a border punch.
The sentiment as well as the poppies are from There She Goes. Buttons and twine are from my stash.

Your card is beautiful! Yes, we have many flowers here in Texas. I guess I never thought about going with flower stamps (other than bluebonnets)to create my Texas cards. Now I will! You did great! I love it!
